About the event

From drones and ransomware to disinformation, new technologies are enabling new kinds of conflict. Is a cyber attack an act of war? With artificial intelligence poised to revolutionise the speed and impact of attacks, how can we prevent cyberspace turning into a battleground? Our expert panel discusses these and other issues.

The Debate will be chaired by writer and broadcaster Timandra Harkness. Timandra presents BBC Radio 4 series, FutureProofing, and has presented the documentaries, Data, Data EverywherePersonality Politics & The Singularity.

Enjoy food and drink purchased from the Knowledge Centre Bar from 18.00 and after the event until the Bar closes at 22.00. The ticket price includes a glass of wine following the debate.
